Converse debuts its premium fall 2008 collections with a new music sneaker collection in continuation of the brand’s 100th anniversary celebration. Each of the unique styles are designed to honor the genres and movements in music and culture that have disrupted the status quo. Key collections include Grateful Dead, Black Sabbath, The Doors, The Who, Ozzy, and Pink Floyd.
Aside from the Grateful Dead collection, Black Sabbath has released three pairs of high top shoes inspired by their metal anthem Iron Man. A tribute to the sound that, in the 1970s emerged and changed the music landscape forever, these shoes feature smooth, monochrome black leather uppers with metallic detailing and Sabbath-signature purple accented linings. Metalwork and hardcore buckles combined with rich black leathers give the Jack Purcell shoe version an especially industrial look and extreme attitude. Prints on the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe versions showcase iconic Black Sabbath artwork. The Jack Purcell shoe is available in parchment/black canvas. The Chuck Taylor All Star shoes come in high top black/white, black/white/gold and parchment/black canvas. The Black Sabbath “We Sold Our Sole For Rock‘N’Roll” is available on www.journeys.com – the other two styles (tan and black/gold) are only available in Journeys stores.
